Loris Karius is reportedly set to leave Liverpool this summer and won’t be asked to report for training at Melwood, according to reports.
The 26-year-old stopper, who has been heavily linked with a move to Wolves, ended his loan spell at Besiktas last month over a contract dispute.
According to Goal, Karius could return to Germany, where he currently lives, with Hertha Berlin keen to sign him, as they are ‘among a number of clubs to have made enquiries about a potential deal’ for Karius.
The report emerges right after claims in Turkey suggested Karius had ‘agreed’ to sign for Wolves in the summer window. Nuno Espirito Santo’s side had been looking at goalkeepers with John Ruddy’s contract due to expire this summer, but it was recently announced that the back-up ‘keeper’s deal has been extended.
In a recent interview Karius’ agent, Florian Goll, has suggested claims of an agreement with Wolves – or any other club – were a little bit premature. He said:
“Karius is still 26 and has a great career ahead of him. He is now returning to Liverpool where he still has two years of the contract. We haven’t discussed what we will do in the future. Let’s see what will happen.”
However, it’s now clear that Karius will be allowed to leave Liverpool once the window opens.
